What's Included

City Stay invites you to “study abroad” locally! We provide experiential education that breaks down barriers and sparks unlikely connections between the diverse cultural communities of the Twin Cities. In our program, MA students will have the opportunity to build meaningful cross-cultural relationships through home stays (alone or in pairs) with local families in the Somali, Hmong and Latino communities. Host families are carefully matched to student preferences. Throughout the week, participants will also meet together as a group for several meals, field trips, and dynamic dialogues with presenters from Minnesota’s immigrant communities. Topics include urban studies, immigration, and the cultures of the Twin Cities. All transportation is provided, except local drop off on the first day and pick up on the last day. Students will stay in the homes of local host families.
